50 Jahre IBM in Österreich (50 years IBM in Austria), 1978

Cover back and front


50 Jahre IBM in Österreich is a very well-designed company book, both the graphic design and the entire concept. This slim, soft cover publication contains portraits of almost all employees working in and for the Austrian division of the now iconic computer company IBM (by November 1977). It even includes Austrian employees working in other countries, interns, and those who have left or retired. All in alphabetical order. The portraits are combined with historical imagery and information on the technical achievements and innovations of the company. The whole design and concept of this book follows various structural patterns, echoing computers.
